Kyoto prefecture continues to refine its previous art projects encapsulating the history, natural features, tangible cultural properties, scenic spots, landscapes, areas abundant in nature, and the culture of everyday life in its designated tourism areas, Kyoto by the Sea (prefecture North), Woodland Kyoto (prefecture central), and Kyoto Tea Country (prefecture South). This year Alternative Kyoto will be redefined as an art festival to explore the possibilities that imaginative art has as a new capital (or currency); possibilities that may change the future of our society. This project aims to implement initiatives promoting local culture to both the Japanese and international audiences driving both international tourism and the revitalization of local economies. It involves the creation of spaces using digital art bringing together outlying culture with the latest in technology, and the exhibition of contemporary art works utilizing artist-in-residence programs incorporating local cultural resources.
